Just some background, I’m new to Trainer Road and just finished completing SSBMV1 & 2, and this Monday took the ramp test for the Sustained Power plan and saw some nice improvements!
218->233 in SSB1
233->240 mid SSB2 as the workouts began to feel easier
240->260 at the end of SSB2
I am 23, 6’2" and 151 lbs for reference.
After taking the ramp test Monday, Avalanche Spire was Thursday which I completed without issue and felt good with the new FTP. Today however was Red Lake +8, which while I knew would be challenging with the new FTP, but thought it would be fine. This was all well and good until I blew up in spectacular fashion at the start of the 4th interval. This is the first workout I have failed, and its left me feeling incredibly disappointed in myself, and in a bit of a soured mood.
How does everyone else deal with such failures?
